At Clouding.io we believe in predictable performance. In other words, your server will always perform as fast as it should.
The RAM that you order for your Cloud Server is the physical RAM that we will keep for it.
We also use innovative technologies such as NUMA placement or Transparent Huge Pages so that your sever´s RAM is as fast as possible.
While it is somewhat complicated to calculate the performance of vCore due to the nature of the cloud, at Clouding.io we offer a series of scales so you can get an idea of the constant performance you can expect from each vCore of your Cloud Server:
- Approximately 120% of an Intel Xeon E5-2683v4 processor core
- Approximately 90% of an Intel Xeon Gold 6148 processor core
- One third of all the combined cores of a late 2016 Intel i5
- A quarter of all Intel i7 mid-2016 cores combined
- Passmark Index (www.cpubenchmark.net): Constant between 2,000 and 2,200
- UnixBench result: Between 2,222 and 2,225
And remember, you can always sign up with Clouding.io, create a cloud server and pass your favourite benchmarking software. As we only charge you for the hours you use it, it will cost you only a few cents.
Ah! The jewel in the crown of Clouding.io, our fantastic distributed storage system based on solid state drives(SSDs).
Following our philosophy of transparency and ease, we have assigned a minimum IOPS number to each Cloud Server, and an additional extra for each SSD storage block assigned to your server.
That is, with each block of 25GB of SSD disc that you assign to your cloud server, the IOPS assigned to it will be increased.
For example, a Cloud Server with the minimum disk size would have the following performance:
Reading IOPS: 8000
Writing IOPS: 8000
That’s … between 16 and 32 times faster than a normal hard drive!
From here, for every 25GB you assign to your cloud server you will get 200 more IOPS for writing and 400 more for reading.
So, for example, a 1900GB disk would have the following IOPS:
Reading IOPS: 8000 + (1875/25 * 400) = 38000
Writing IOPS: 8000 + (1875/25 * 200) = 38000
And this with a constant performance and an approximate response time of 1.5 ms.
The Clouding.io platform uses a CISCO network with a minimum of 80 Gbps at any of its points and with 160 Gbps zones where more power is needed.
Your cloud server has 2 network connections, the first one has a public IP and is connected directly to the internet, without NAT or odd things, so you can use it as and for whatever you want to. The second is connected to a private network to which only you and your cloud servers have access, perfect to share sensitive or important data between your cloud servers. Following on from the philosophy of transparency, below you can find the performance you can expect from each of these network connections:
Private Network: 2 constant gbps in each cloud server.
Public Network Local Access: 500 constant mbps in each cloud server.
Public Network Internet access: 500 constant mbps in each cloud server.
And remember, the first 2 TB (Terabytes) of Internet transfer are included with your cloud server. But don't worry, if you do go over them, we'll charge you the extra traffic with only 2 Euro cents per GB (GigaByte) for the extra transfer.
